The disadvantage is that they tend to have a nondescript shape, are usually light weight and are normally a low quality in terms of manufacture and finish.

Rolled knives are inexpensive to manufacture and are typically sold with low quality or budget flatware sets. They generally have nicely tapered thin blades that allow them to cut food easily.

It is critical to make sure that the forge scale from the forming process is completely removed, that they are fully hardened and then polished to a total mirror finish. If the pattern you are looking at has lots of detail, make sure that the knife handles are fully polished in the grooves.

Avoid any forged knives that have rough areas on the handle or blade as they are prone to rust problems. Hollow Handle knives are generally reserved for high-end flatware patterns.

They are manufactured in the tradition of historic sterling patterns, but today are made using stainless steel, which will not need polishing. Like forged knives, they are large in stature but due to their hollow handle construction, are not as heavy.

The care taken during the final steps of manufacturing is one of the top determinations of why some patterns cost more. The first method involves stamping a single piece of metal into the shape of a knife.

This is the least expensive method for constructing a knife, and its cutting performance is poor to fair, depending on the manufacturer. The second method is to use the “drop forge” technique, where molten steel is poured into a mold, and is fashioned into the shape of a knife.

Most manufacturers who use this technique will spend a little more time on the blade finishing, and its performance is fair to moderate. The third method is to use a hollow knife handle, insert a high-quality carbon-steel cutting blade, then sealing the two together.

With this technique, the manufacturer can offer a variety of different quality knife blades. Many of these blades are serrated, but in the higher quality of patterns they are not, due to their already superior cutting edge.

Flatware manufacturers are always working to create a good balance of dishwasher resistance and superior cutting performance. All of these numbers refer to the percentages of Chromium and Nickel found in the stainless steel alloy.

If you are opening a restaurant, and want to keep your costs down, as well as being able to wash it several times a day in the dishwasher, pick a 13/0 or 18/0 flatware pattern with a cheap, flat handle knife. By contrast, a company that makes 18/10 pots and pans purchases a stainless steel called Grade 305, which contains a minimum of 10% Nickel.

While all forks, knives, and spoons basically share the same characteristics, there are subtle differences in silverware designs that have a big impact on how it feels in the hand, how well the weight is distributed, and how it rests on the table. The Silver Superstore offers over 70 patterns with Plain handle designs, but the price range varies from $8.95 to $79.95 per place setting.

In these prices ranges, you will generally not get a hollow handle knife, and the weights of the patterns are lessened. Of course, you can always just purchase a new boxed set whenever you lose a significant number of pieces.

Shaking up the silverware design on your tabletop every couple of years isn't such a bad thing! We can tell you that nearly every staff member at the Silver Superstore has upgraded their flatware patterns since they started working here.

Vera Wang Hammered Stainless Flatware The numbers 18/10, 18/8, and 18/0 pertaining to stainless steel flatware do not designate the same quality and vary considerably in price and composition.

It's actually a marketing ploy and if these flatware specs are missing altogether, this product may not really be stainless steel at all. The main ingredients in flatware are chromium and nickel which are added to provide a resistance to corrosion.

That makes everyday cutlery easy to care for and for the most part, it has some amount of resistance when it comes to pitting or rusting. These differences in specifications are often denoted on the packaging but often are missed when shopping for stainless steel cutlery.

However, some flatware manufacturers will label cutlery with a slightly higher than 8 percent nickel content, such as 8.3 percent as 18/10, since it doesn’t quite fit in the 18/8 category, and this labeling is totally allowable, but a little deceiving, nonetheless. It should be noted that even the best stainless steel flatware is subject to occasional pitting and corrosion if not properly cared for.

Dishwasher detergents tend to be harsh to stainless steel flatware and that can sometimes cause blemishes. Give some thought to how many flatware servings to buy so you will have a set that meets your immediate and future needs.
